spatial@gov® is the geospatial event organised in conjunction with the peak organisations in Australia and New Zealand representing trhe public, private, research and professional sectors of the spatial community. Themes for this year's conference include:
- Water Security
- Government Spatial Activities in Other Countries
- Access to Government Spatial Information
- Emergency Response
- The Spatial Framework for Virtual Australia
Steven Ramage the OGC's Executive Director Marketing & Communications, will speak.
The theme of the 2013 symposium will be Earth Observation and Global Environmental Change - 50 Years of Remote Sensing: Progress and Prospects. With the increased accessibility of interactive maps and virtual globes, along with the proliferation of spatially-aware devices and sensors, Earth observation is experiencing a kind of rebirth with unprecedented potential for innovation and discovery. It is an exciting time to be involved in the field, and the 35th ISRSE is being held for the first time in China, a nation with huge investments in both Earth observation technology and environmental science.
The OGC will lead a workshop at ISRSE35 on 21 April: " Interoperability, GEOSS Implementation Pilots and Remote Sensing of the Environment; Real World Case Studies". We look forward to seeing you there!
From the year 2006, Map Africa conference has evolved tremendously with time, encompassing and deliberating on various application areas and emerging geospatial technologies serving the same. Map Africa 2010 is a remarkable milestone that we achieved through the journey of Map Africa series of conferences.
In order to maintain our pace with the changing world and be a part of the transforming mapping industry, we are glad to rebrand the conference as Africa Geospatial Forum and take it to new destination i.e ‘Kenya’. Kenya, being classified as a developing and an emerging African nation with rich diversity is an appropriate venue to host the Forum.
Africa Geospatial Forum shall have impressive technical programme with a renowned array of speakers from across the continent who will share their unique perspective and insights into the African Geospatial industry with little focus on the issue of vision 2030. The conference shall offer an unparalleled balance of substantive information with ample time for networking and socialising. The forum will be built upon the past experiences with the same objective of propagating and promoting the significant usage of Geospatial Technologies as a tool serving varied domains. Through the voices of key major users, decision makers, technology innovators, and industry leaders the conference will examine the programmes, systems, and initiatives that are transforming the continent with key focus on sectors like infrastructure & utilities, Earth Observation System, emerging trends, social development etc.
